Graduating and starting a career might seem like a daunting prospect, but it’s also an exciting opportunity to do something you’re passionate about and experience new things. Digital Media Technology covers such a broad range of subjects, our graduates end up in all sorts of different roles. A team of current students and staff from our film courses caught up with some of our Digital Media Technology graduates to see where they are now, and to ask for their advice on starting and building a career.
Emma Chilton, BSc Music Technology graduate.
After graduating, Emma volunteered her skills for a few different projects and made some good contacts in the industry. She now works on TV dramas such as Call the Midwife and Black Mirror, and her work on series four of Sherlock was nominated for an Emmy award. Her advice is to tell everyone you meet who you are, what you do, and what you want to do, because you never know who they might be able to introduce you to.
Arondeep Randhawa, BSc Film Production Technology graduate.
Aron didn’t send out CVs or look for specific job vacancies, he sent out emails that showed off his work and creative skills to companies he wanted to work for, and ended up creating the ideal vacancy for himself.
Irfan Yasin, BSc Digital Media Computing graduate.
Irfan started using his skills by building websites, and has now helped to launch an online video platform. His advice is to do as much extra learning and experimenting in your spare time because being able to show your initiative and passion will set you apart from other graduates.
